Walks in the Park with Friends of Baxter State Park

Each year, a few members of Friends of Baxter State Park make the journey to Millinocket on Opening Day, the day after Martin Luther King Day, and stand in line in sub-zero weather to make reservations for Walks in the Park. Now, be forewarned. A “Walk” in the Park can be just that, a walk; but it can also be a backcountry camping trip, a mountain ascent, or a guided geology tour.

We invite you to join other Friends in the Park. Cabin, bunkhouse, lean-to – we’ve got some of each lined up for each season, in the north and in the south of the Park. We’ve arranged for a winter ski trip to Katahdin Lake as well as what has become known as the “Warm” Winter Weekend in cabins accessible by car. Most trips are two or three nights, but some are shorter day trips.
